I was recently commissioned by a gentleman who wished to surprise a dear friend with a one of a kind gift for her birthday – a poem he wrote himself, illustrated in a painting by me!
To start things off, we discussed the things that his friend liked most: favorite flowers & colors; I suggested that to compliment the poem’s spirituality, we could make the background ethereal and cloudlike, and use an elegant calligraphic font.
Soon enough, we were up and running, and I drew up a rough sketch in Photoshop. At the last minute, we elected to add his friend’s portrait to give it that personal touch, and the finished piece, in his words, “brought her to tears.”
